WiFi Repeaters / Extenders

Not Getting Enough Wi-Fi Coverage Throughout Your House, Then Here Are Your 4 Basic Options

OPTION ONE - Using a long standard Ethernet cable, and a second standard Wi-Fi router. Plug one end of the Ethernet cable into one of the spare LAN sockets on the back of the first router (the one that has the incoming internet signal going into it) and the other end of the Ethernet cable into the WLAN socket (normally a different colour from the LAN Sockets) of the second router, situated closer to where you are trying to extend your Wi-Fi internet signal to.
PRO'S - Cheapest option
CON'S - Second router will have a different Network ID and Password
Will involve some tedious cabling work

OPTION TWO - Use a "Man In The Middle" radio type Repeater. This device is plugged into a wall socket, half way between the main router (the one that has the incoming internet signal going into it) and the area you are trying to get extra Wi-Fi coverage to. It must be placed somewhere it can get a reasonable signal from the main router. Do not expect great results with this method.
PRO'S - Very cheap option, about 16.
Fairly easy to set up, although positioning of the repeater is critical.
CON'S - Because the repeater takes in the Wi-Fi signal, and then has to send the same signal back out again, it cannot do this at exactly the same time, otherwise the two signals would interfere with each other, so half of the speed is lost in the process.

OPTION THREE - Use a "Powerline Extender" device which consists of two devices (Sender & Receiver) and the mains wiring in the house, to convey the internet signal to any mains socket in the same house. The Sender (normally located next to the main router) is plugged into a wall socket, and then a Ethernet cable from the Sender is plugged into one of the spare LAN sockets on the back of the main router (the one that has the incoming internet signal going into it). This now sends the internet signal through the house wiring. The "Powerline" receiver is plugged into a mains wall socket (at the point where you want to extend the internet to) and has a Ethernet socket, which you can plug a Ethernet cable into. The other end of this Ethernet cable can either be plugged into a PC/TV/Laptop/IPTV or even another standard Wi-Fi router.
PRO'S - The speed and quality of the internet signal (assuming the house wiring is good and no major interference) arriving at the receiving end is nearly, if not as good as the internet signal going into it.
CON'S - Does not transmit a Wi-Fi signal at the receiving end, only sends a single Ethernet in / Ethernet out connection between the two devices. Both devices need to be on the same fused circuit. Range is quality of house wiring dependant. This is the Cheapest "Powerline Extender" option, at about 35.

OPTION FOUR - (Is similar to option 3). Use's a "Powerline Extender" device which consists of two devices (Sender & Receiver) and the mains wiring in the house, to convey the internet signal to any mains socket in the same house. The Sender (normally located next to the main router) is plugged into a wall socket, and then a Ethernet cable from the Sender is plugged into one of the spare LAN sockets on the back of the main router (the one that has the incoming internet signal going into it). This now sends the internet signal throughout the house wiring. The "Powerline" receiver is plugged into a mains wall socket (at the point near to where you want to extend the internet to) and has a Wife router built in, so you could connect your devices wirelessly (or wired, the preferred method) to this receiving device (the Network ID & Password will be different from the main Router, the details of which are on a sticker of the unit). It also has two Ethernet ports, even better for connecting things like Firesticks etc.
PRO'S - The speed and quality of the internet signal (assuming the house wiring is good and no major interference) arriving at the receiving end is nearly, if not as good as the internet signal going into it. Has Wife router built into 2nd receiving device location, also has 2 Ethernet sockets,  if you want to connect your devices with an Ethernet cable, the preferred method .
CON'S - Both devices need to be on the same fused circuit. Range is quality of house wiring dependant. Fairly expensive option, at about 55.

OPTION FIVE - Very similar to option 4, but has two "Powerline Extender" Receivers.
PRO'S - The speed and quality of the internet signal (assuming the house wiring is good and no major interference) arriving at the receiving end is nearly, if not as good as the internet signal going into it. Both 2nd and 3rd device locations have a Wi-Fi router built-in, along with two Ethernet ports.
CON'S
- All devices need to be on the same fused circuit. Range is quality of house wiring dependant. Expensive option, at about 100.

IN ALL OPTIONS THE MAIN ROUTER CAN STILL BE USED WIRELESSLY AS A WIRELESS Wi-Fi ROUTER SIMULTANEOUSLY

In all cases if you intend to use a IPTV device, it is always better to get an Ethernet cable from the router (or via a Powerline Extender) to the IPTV device (if you can).
